Don't miss this one.

The biggest supermoon in 70 years will light up the night's sky on November 14.

The best place to see a supermoon may be from an airplane seat, but if you don't have a flight booked for the night of the 14th, because there are plenty of other places around the world to take in the sight.

Astrologer Richard Nolle, who is credited with coining the term for the lunar phenomenon, a supermoon is “a new or full moon which occurs with the moon at or near (within 90% of) its closest approach to Earth in a given orbit.”

November's supermoon is special because it's the closest the moon has come to the Earth since Jan. 26, 1948.

The moon won't appear this big again until Nov. 25, 2034.

The best time to catch the phenomenon will be starting at 7:02pm ET on November 14. If you miss it, there will be one more not-quite-as-super supermoon this year, on December 14.
